Police chief worried over Afrobarometer survey
The Police Divisional Commander of Konongo, Chief Superintendant Alex Amenyo has expressed shock and been taken aback by the public perception on police administration over corruption.
According to results of the Afrobarometer Survey just released, the public believe that 89% of police officers are involved in corruption.
He said the figure was too high an unexplainable.
“We were not trained to be corrupt”, he lamented.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service Public Relations Officer DSP Cephas Arthur said they do not trust the findings of the survey.
“I think it is so monotonous that this time around we intended not to comment, but we feel that it is in the public domain.”
He added: “As it stands, it remains an academic exercise. It is academic because I don’t trust it, I think it is not deeply scientific enough to bring out the truth of the situation”.
According to him, the report is “inaccurate because to get the true reflection of the real index on the ground, you need to do more random sampling”.
The Konongo police chief urged the public to have confidence in police since the police as there are there to protect citizens.
